The mission of the Community Asylum Seekers Project is to provide basic needs and a supportive community for those in the process of seeking asylum in the U.S.
New regulations about asylum seekers, along with COVID-19 constraints on fundraising, are presenting CASP with a two-fold financial challenge:
- the need for extended support of new guests, who must (as of June 2020) wait double the time – a full year – before applying for a work permit
- the suspension of all in-person fundraising events
You can help us meet this challenge by:
- participating generously in our current StartSomeGood campaign
- using our DONATE NOW button in the sidebar – and opting for monthly support!
In response to the evolving COVID-19 situation, we are providing our volunteers, staff, and asylum-seeking guests with state and local guidelines, in Spanish and English, about in-person contact – realizing that everyone will need to take the personal precautions that protect their healthcare needs.
